7 Natural Ways to Lower Blood Pressure
Yes, thank you for your prompt reply. I am questioning an increased co-payment of $27.19 for my latest purchase of 30 (150 mg) tablets. I have Humana Gold coverage under Medicare and have been taking this drug for a number of years. The usual co-payment has been $40.00. What would justify the sudden, large increase in cost? I am certain the formulary has not changed. Is there a generic drug for this available yet?
Thanks for your interest and quick reply.
I'd call your insurance company to discuss the reason for the increase on their end. I remember during each of my pregnancies I took the same medication for months, yet almost every insurance statement had a co-pay that would not have been corrected if I did not call the insurance company to discuss it. So, that's the first step I'd take. Second, discuss other medication options with your physician. The generic name for avapro is irbesartan.
I am taking Avapro and need to take a pain reliever for my lower back. What should I take so as not to interact with Avapro?
